RotateView window


Glyphs font editor plugin that allows one to rotate a glyph and view it from different angles. This plugin was inspired by an experience in punchcutting and appreciating the ability to rotate a Glyph and look at curves from all angles.

Code is written by Aaron Bell


  • Open the RotateView plugin from the Window menu.
  • It will automatically display the currently selected glyph.
  • Use the slider to rotate the glyph in the view clockwise and counter-clockwise.
  • The window can be resized and the glyph will resize.

👉Depends on Vanilla module. Please install it via Glyphs Preferences > Addons > Module


Tested on Glyphs 2.4.1 under OSX El Capitan. The script may not work under an older version of Glyphs or OS.
